Story by  André Sobocinski   U.S. Navy Bureau of Medicine and Surgery   President Hoover and his cabinet tossed a medicine ball over volleyball net. Known as Hoover Ball, this game was devised by Navy physician Cmdr. (later Vice Adm.) Joel Boone.    Boone convinced Hoover to start throwing a medicine ball around for a few minutes each day.

Each of these pioneers were former WAVES—Women Accepted for Volunteer Enlisted Service—who had served in various capacities in World War II. And although they are not considered plankowners of the Medical Service Corps, they represent the first women to serve in the Medical Service Corps.

   Story by  André Sobocinski    USS Relief (AH-1) holds a special place in the annals of Navy Medicine. Though the sixth ship bearing the name Relief since 1836, she was (and still is) the ONLY naval vessel ever constructed from the keel up as a floating hospital. And although the fifth hospital ship employed by the U.S. Navy since 1898, she was the first ever bestowed a hull number.

Story by André Sobocinski U.S. Navy Bureau of Medicine and Surgery “Hospital Corpsmen” is more than a name for an enlisted medical specialist. Becoming a Hospital Corpsman takes rigorous training, meeting personnel qualification standards and proficiency in the core competencies. This was a fact known even before the Hospital Corps was formally established on June 17th, 1898.
